[alcatel-nsp] Log for unstable MAC Address in FDB Table (looping effect)

starting on page 530 of the 7750SR 6.1 services guide (yes, i know you said 7450) there's a whole bunch of mac-related protection and notification mechanisms within a VPLS.  i don't know if they'd work for you in a 7450 environment, but it's a good read nonetheless.  i don't know if it specifically creates a log entry for a certain mac, but you could pin a mac to a specific SDP or SAP, and entries indicating that the mac showed up on a SAP would give you an idea that there's movement happening.

i haven't tested it.
